US Prez Joe Biden unveils plan funding more police to combat surge in homicides

United States President Joe Biden has unveiled a plan that includes funding more police to combat a nationwide surge in homicides, which he blamed on lax gun control. Announcing his five-point strategy at the White House yesterday, the President urged cities and states to use 350 billion dollars of funding from a Covid-19 relief bill on public safety efforts, including adding more police officers, even beyond pre-pandemic levels.

Mr Biden said officials in high crime areas can hire more law-enforcement personnel using corona virus relief funding. The administration’s strategy also proposes investing in community violence intervention programmes, employment opportunities and summer activities for teenagers and young adults, and support for formerly incarcerated Americans re-entering their communities.
